How Many People Died In 2018 Palu, Indonasia Tsunami (See Video & Pictures)

Palu, Tsunami Indonasia 2018: Over 832 people have died in the gigantic tsunami that rocked Palu, a region of Indonesia on Saturday.

According to the reports, the heavy Tsunami happened after the capital of Central Sulawesi province, was triggered by a 7.5 magnitude earthquake on land.

The video footage shows people screaming and running for their lives as the giant waves hit the town of 380,000 people. The city is built around a narrow bay that apparently magnified the force of the tsunami waters as they raced into the tight inlet.

Mr Nugroho said thousands of homes, hospitals, shopping malls and hotels have been washed away. A large bridge spanning a coastal river also collapsed. Bodies of victims trapped in the rubble are also being found and at least 350 people have been injured. Dozens of injured people are being treated in makeshift medical tents set up outdoors.

The city of Palu was hit alongside a smaller city Donggala. Power outages mean there is little information coming out of Donggala, which was just 16 miles from the epicentre of the quake. More than 600,000 people live in the cities of Palu and Donggala.
